The tourism industry is one of the largest industry in the world. It is a good source of income for most countries including India. Even though India ranks very low when compared to other Asian countries in terms of number of foreign tourists coming to India, the number of foreign arrivals are increasing promisingly. The industry earns the country some precious amount of foreign exchange. The country benefits through both domestic and international tourism. International tourism is however both ways, incoming as well as outgoing. Being a large industry, tourism, whether domestic or international, has a greater effect on the economy, environment and the socio-cultural fabric of the country.
